HYDERABAD: The Hyderabad Metropolitan Development Authority(HMDA) is working on a proposal to develop two islands on Hussain Sagar Lakebetween Sanjeevaiah Parkand Jal Vihar informed T Chiranjeevulu, Metropolitan Commissioner, HMDA.Interacting with the media at The Yacht Club of Hyderabad at Sanjeevaiah Park in the city Wednesday evening, Chirajeevulu stated that these two Islands, each spread over an acre land, will come up in next four to five months.
“These Islands will be built with the dredged sediments of the lake. Already these dredged sediments are deposited and mounted in one side of the lake which can be seen,” he stated.
“Our idea is to use small land pockets existing in the lake and pile up sediments collected from the lake bed through dredging and develop islets and greenery on it so that people can go around the place and have an all together a different kind of an experience of the lake. There is no extra cost involved in doing it so” he added that the heaps of sediments with edges properly contoured will not take much cost or effort. The shifting of the mud collected from the bed of the lake is more tedious. Also it is a problem because it is highly toxic in nature. Another advantage is that since the sediment from the lake itself is used and no external material is brought into the lake to create these two islands.
